By Helen Wright, CRA-I Senior Program Associate
CRA-I was created in the Fall of 2020 with the goal of reaching out to industry partners involved in computing research and giving them new opportunities to convene and connect on topics of mutual interest with academia and government.
The committee recognizes the diversity of companies that participate in the computing research ecosystem and seeks to enable those companies, big and small, to get the greatest benefit from sharing their experiences with each other. Furthermore, CRA-I recognizes that many companies not traditionally contributing or benefitting from computing research are now actively engaging with the computing research community. We seek to help such companies engage, contribute, and participate in the computing research community for the benefit of all.
While this is a new committee, we have already begun hosting virtual roundtables and in-person workshops. Please click here to subscribe to email updates from CRA-I. Also, please check out the newly released website and don’t hesitate to reach out to us (firstname.lastname@example.org/cra) if you have any questions.
